    2010 El Terremoto + angleset

    Hi, I'm in love with my T'Moto, but I was interested about installing an angleset and test new geometry. I put a Work Components one with minus/plus 1 degree head angle.

    Now, my medium size T'Moto numbers are:

    Head angle: 67,5º with 160 fork (now 66º with 170 LyrikDH Coil)
    Wheel base: 112,77 (now 113,7 )
    BB Height: 35,05 (now 35,2)

    Tomorrow I'll test new geometry ;-)

    P.S.: I've installed angleset using a Park Tool bearing cup press Park Tool Co. » HHP-3 : Home Mechanic Bearing Cup Press : Headset, but angleset sightly turns becoming disaligned. It was necessary to lock headset with a press tool.

    Looking forward to hear what you think about the headset. I have a Works Components Headset on order for my X-5.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Yesterday, i could test the Angleset Untitled by endureroatipic at Garmin Connect - Details

    My first impressions: New seat angle seems more confortable in big degree ascents, but minor BB height doesn't is a problem. Ascending with my lyrik 170 DH coil becomes more easy.

    Agility: I don't feel my bike lazy, but in loose over hard terrain it's necessary put more weight over handbar.

    The worst sensation, a really big ****: Angleset it's not a CK! You must take a choice: clearance or friction.

    P.S.. Sorry for my terrible english writting

    Stripes, worth it , ¡sure!. More than one year and +2000 miles, I think the new geometry makes my T'Moto a more capable bike. With Lyrik 170 I measured 66º instead of original 67,5º

    Penalties? Difficult of installing (it's important to be precise with star nut torque for prevent clearance or friction) and maintenance with grease every 3-6 month for prevent headset noises.

    I think a 170/160 bike is really a minidh bike, not an all-mountain and new angles are more logical.

    P:s. If you install an angleset, go directly -1º.

    Yeah and let me know if you can find one, Stripes. I had checked out their website a while back pretty consistently and they were constantly sold out.

    The Works. My Terremoto has a straight 1 1/8th head tube, and Cane Creek does not make an angle set for that, only Works does.

    After one year of use, Works angleset still works correctly, but without charge bearings make a little crackle. I put some grease and silence returns ;-)

    No creaking in the headset. Very smooth.
